Papers and statement by minister

MR BARR (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Sport and Recreation, Minister for Tourism and Events and Minister for Community Services): For the information of members I present the following papers:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 18A—Authorisation of expenditure from the Treasurer's Advance to the Legal Aid Commission, including a statement of reasons, dated 16 October 2013.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the papers.

Leave granted.

MR BARR: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table a copy of an authorisation for a Treasurer's advance provided to the Legal Aid Commission of the ACT. Section 18 of the act provides for the Treasurer to authorise expenditure from the Treasurer's advance. Section 18A of the act requires that within three sitting days after the day the authorisation is given the Treasurer must present to the Assembly a copy of the authorisation instrument, a statement of the reasons for giving it and a summary of the total expenditure authorised under section 18 for the financial year.

This instrument I am tabling today provides an increase of $1,198,022 in net cost of outputs appropriation for the Legal Aid Commission of the territory to meet expenses related to the board of inquiry into the conviction of Mr David Eastman. I commend these papers to the Assembly.
